What a mess!
I did once throw a strap of US$1s in the washer on gentle cycle for a few minutes with a couple drops of laundry detergent.
Then I pulled them out, ironed them and stamped them with Where's George.
It was a really ratty strap from a small town BofA branch.
Wait whaaaaaa, you put money in the washhhh?
isn't that considered laundered money ??
You ever just make a big mess of bank notes on accident?"
Yes, I call it my foreign currency collection.
When I started collecting currency I didn't like the sleeves the currency came in
so removed them from the sleeves along w/ the Pick numbers.
Now, I've got a lot of foreign currency that needs to be cataloged.
Had I left them in the original sleeves it would've been an easy task.
"Wait whaaaaaa, you put money in the washhhh?"
Years ago, I dated a bank teller who would give me interesting currency she would discover while at work. When I did my laundry I put the old dirty currency in khaki pants pockets then iron the currency (and the pants) after they were dry.
Looked good to me.
It actually flattens the intaglio printing a bit.
But they work fine for WheresGeorge... and I did get a couple hits 3, 4 even 5 years later from the "ratty" bills.
ohhhhh interesting, I would try it for my self but I dont want to mess it up
Looks like fun
